On the Beach Guesthouse
Ranked #4 of 51 Jeffreys Bay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 February 2014

All equipment for beach activities are provided. You can walk straight onto the beach. The rooms are of a reasonable size but the bathrooms are open. The breakfast offers a good choice of food. It is also well located for self catering. security is good with off road car parking. Wifi not good in your room and varies in speed. Sprinklers come on too early in the evening, sitting out! Watch out!

Thank you for your wonderful review, we have taken your thoughts on the sprinklers in consideration and have reset the timer to start at a much later time to not cause any discomfort for our guests. We hope to welcome you back to On the Beach Guesthouse again in future.

This a beautifully decorated guest house in a perfect location giving great views along Jeffreys Bay. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast, served in a a room with a view, was delicious. Just a shame that wifi requires payment and was difficult to access - this is an important facility nowadays when travelling and has been free in all other places that we have stayed in SA.

The location is right on the beach and we stayed in the beautifully decorated penthouse suite from where we watched the dolphins play in the surf. The view from the breakfast room is outstanding and 5 star breakfast was served by the friendliest waiter I have met in a long time. The only improvement I could suggest is a mini fridge in the room.

We had an invitation to stay at this guest house. The location, fascilities, views, are fantastic. I would return as a guest any time. Best for me was the super comfortable pillows. One thing I would add to the room is more tea bags and fresh milk if possible.
